On many occasions we need some data about our car that we do not have, at that moment, within our reach. Now, few users know that the DGT offers us a large amount of data and at the same time. We tell you which ones.
The first thing is to comment that all the data is available and free of charge at the electronic headquarters of the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) and in the miDGT mobile application. They are divided into three sections.
- Tuition: It is the vehicle identification. Spanish license plates have numbers ranging from 0000 to 9999 and three letters. With certain exceptions, since both vowels such as Q, Ñ, CH and LL are prohibited on Spanish license plates.
- Frame number: Also known as VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), it is a 17-character alphanumeric sequence that is assigned to each motor vehicle when it is manufactured.
Vehicle technical data
- Displacement: It is the total volume of all the cylinders of the car’s engine and appears on the driving license. It is a fact that only combustion engines have.
- Fuel: Car batteries. Without it, the vehicle will not operate. It is important to know this, since making a mistake can cause a breakdown. The most common are gasoline and diesel. Now new propulsion systems come into play: LPG, NG, all varieties of hybrids and electric.
- Environmental distinctive: It is a way of classifying vehicles based on their energy efficiency, taking into account their environmental impact. Currently, there are four badges (Zero, Eco, C and B).
Insurance and ITV details
- Actual state: The insurance information, name of the company and the date of registration are offered.
- ITV: You can check the expiration date and kilometers recorded in the last inspection. The ITV card is mandatory, along with the driving license, to be able to circulate. Here you can download a copy of the card, although it will not be valid for circulation.

In other things, you can also consult the tax address of the vehicles and whether they have a designated regular driver that is not the owner. According to the DGT, a regular driver will be considered one who is going to use the vehicle for continuous periods of more than one month, and in the case of rental vehicles, for rentals of more than three days.
